This page provides access to the presentations and materials offered throughout the 2018 California Safety Organized Practice Conference, which was hosted by the Northern California Training Academy at the University of California, Davis June 26-27. The statewide conference provided an opportunity for counties implementing Safety Organized Practice (SOP) to explore strategies for rigor and depth of practice across the case continuum, and to share strengths, challenges and successes around implementation and sustainability.
This resource provides access to the Northern California Training Academy's extensive list of published guides, tips and tools for child welfare practice improvement.
Explore techniques for working effectively and safely in stressful and potentially dangerous situations, along with techniques and strategies for maximizing professional and personal performance.
This resource provides access to the Northern California Training Academy's Core for Social Workers Module 8 training materials. To learn more about the Academy, please visit humanservices.ucdavis.edu/academy.
This is an introductory level module for undergraduate or beginning graduate level social work students, or for public child welfare staff. Basic information about the brain and the impact of traumatic experiences are covered.
The outcome for this introductory module is to understand the basic neurobiological impact of trauma, while respecting the rapid evolution of knowledge regarding this phenomena. The module teaches to the following learning objectives:
1. Know function of key brain parts
2. Recognize key neurotransmitter names
3. Understand that the brain develops into early adulthood
4. Describe impact of early trauma on the brain & how this may impact behavior
5. Define brain plasticity & its relationship to healing
6. To help with terminology, it is recommended that students have a printout of the summary sheet.
The module consists of slides introducing the content, 9 self-assessment quiz questions with feedback for incorrect responses, and a list of references and resources for further study. The module can be used as a self-study professional development resource or to supplement an in-person course.
In “Pass or Fail in Cambodia Town,” host Maria Hinojosa visits Long Beach, California, where she finds a Southeast Asian community struggling with what one interviewee describes as a “trauma-informed history.” Far from the stereotype of Asians as a “model minority,” less than 65 percent of Cambodian adults in the United States have graduated from high school. Cambodia Town, a neighborhood in Long Beach, is a community plagued by poverty and gang violence.
Students are introduced to prosthetics history, purpose and benefits, main components, main types, materials, control methods, modern examples including modern materials used to make replacement body parts and the engineering design considerations to develop prostheses. They learn how engineers and medical doctors work together to improve the lives of people with amputations and the challenges faced when designing new prostheses with functional and cosmetic criteria and constraints. A PowerPoint(TM) presentation and two worksheets are provided.
Psychology is designed to meet scope and sequence requirements for the single-semester introduction to psychology course. The book offers a comprehensive treatment of core concepts, grounded in both classic studies and current and emerging research. The text also includes coverage of the DSM-5 in examinations of psychological disorders. Psychology incorporates discussions that reflect the diversity within the discipline, as well as the diversity of cultures and communities across the globe.Senior Contributing AuthorsRose M.

By the end of this section, you will be able to:Describe the nature and symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorderIdentify the risk factors associated with this disorderUnderstand the role of learning and cognitive factors in its development
This is an introductory to intermediate level module for undergraduate or graduate level social work students, or for public child welfare staff. It presents basic information about responses to trauma, along with a trauma-spotting practice tool. SSHARED can help identify trauma survivors and offers some best-practice strategies for planning interventions.
The learning objectives for the module are:
1. Be able to identify key signs (symptoms) of trauma
2. Be able to describe alternative contextual “meanings “ of such signs, most notably developmental stage & culture
3. Be able to describe the associated “lesson, result and help” for such symptoms, using the SSHARED handout
4. Gain an empathic understanding of the impact of trauma in the PCW context
5. Be able to apply SSHARED to a case example
The module consists of slides introducing the content, 9 self-assessment quiz questions with feedback for incorrect responses, and a list of references and resources for further study. A handout outlining the SSHARED assessment tool is provided as a downloadable attachment. The module can be used as a self-study professional development resource or to supplement an in-person course.
Episode 1, part 1: Interview with Sir Michael Marmot, Professor of Epidemiology and Public Health at University College London about the current state of Global Health, with special focus on Health Equity. The first episode consists of two parts.
The Swedish Global Health Podcast - A Podcast about Global Health and Sustainable Development is aimed at anyone interested in knowing more about this exciting topic! It is co-produced by the Swedish Society of Medicine's Committee for Global Health and the Swedish Society of Medicine's student and junior doctor section.
This is an intermediate level module for undergraduate or graduate level social work students, or for public child welfare staff with some exposure to Trauma Informed Practice. It presents information about trauma related vocabulary, the Mental Health System, advocacy and DSM V trauma related diagnoses.
Learning objects addressed in this module are:
1. Describe the importance of MH Intervention for trauma survivors
2. Identify MH vocabulary regarding trauma and referrals
3. Describe MH service options
4. Describe the basic DSM V Trauma/Stressor Diagnostic Labels
5. Apply a basic MH risk assessment
6. Complete a best practice case-based MH advocacy, referral, and follow-up plan
The module consists of slides introducing the content, 9 self-assessment quiz questions with feedback for incorrect responses, and a list of references and resources for further study. To support learning of new terminology, a summary sheet of vocabulary common to mental health services is provided as a downloadable attachment. The module can be used as a self-study professional development resource or to supplement an in-person course.
An article about how babies and toddlers are directly affected by trauma, trauma in the household, home or routine disruption, and how you can provide a supportive environment.
This resource provides access to videos produced and/or used by the Northern California Training Academy to support training for child welfare practitioners. To learn more about the Academy, please visit humanservices.ucdavis.edu/academy.
Students experience the engineering design process as they design and construct lower-leg prostheses in response to a hypothetical zombie apocalypse scenario. Like the well-known Apollo 13 story during which engineers were challenged to fix the crippled spacecraft with limited supplies in order to save astronauts' lives, in this activity, students act as engineers during an imaginary disaster in which a group member's leg was amputated in order to survive a zombie attack. Building on what they learned and researched in the associated lesson, they design and fabricate a replacement prosthetic limb using given specific starting material and limited additional supplies, similar to how engineers design for individuals while working within constraints. A more-advanced scenario challenges students to design a prosthesis that is able to provide a more-specific movement function.
